In honour of guitar great Les Paul, a recordable electric guitar built in the shape of the Google logo is seen in the homepage. Les Paul who was an innovative recording artist who created new ways to overdub tracks in the recording studio, would have been 96 years old today.

You can strum the little by hovering the mouse over the strings. Another way is by typing on your keyboard. Another feature, which is only available in the U.S., allows you to record every note you play.

It also creates a URL that you can share, so your friends can listen to your masterpiece. Here’s another interesting feature: send the URL to your friend and when that person pastes that URL into the address bar, you can play a duet together. Cool, isn’t it.

You can play along with your own as well, like did for the first time way back in the late ’40s – .

And when you click the itself, you will be redirected to sites featuring Les Paul

Kudos to for honouring Les Paul, who’s one of the first electric guitarists and builder of one of the first solid-body electric guitars by this inventive doodle. His memory is being paid homage with yet another innovation, a guitar that can record and overdub.
